this diary is fourth grade, the first year of 1991, it looks like. so i was 10 years old. i know you can't read it. dear diary, happy new year. the first thing i wanted to do was lose four pounds, anspelled it l-o-e-s. so obviously, i needed to take up spelling. >> how old were you? >> i was like 10 or 11. >> and you wanted to lose four pounds? >> yeah, first of all, why four? who thought four was a good number. but also that that had been on the list since i was 10 years old. and i have a mom that is not, you know, doesn't talk about diets or nothing. >> where did you get that? >> i don't know. maybe my friends or subconsciously something that, so i just realized that no matter, as of this year, that is not going to be on my list. it's probably been on, in some form or another for 25 years. >> but you know what could be on our list?
class with jenna. and it really did get me hooked. i was not interested. look at this. >> yeah. >> i love it. it, what you do is go in the class, they crank the music up so loud that you can't hear and they turn the lights practically off so you can't see. it's perfect. >> also, one of the things that we studied, the whole study about how music motivates. soul cycle is so awesome, but if you don't have a soul cycle where you are, turn the lights down in the house, turn up the music and dance around the house with your kids or if your husband will dance with you. mine is like, why are we dancing? >> he will dance with you? >> last night i made him. >> i thought it would be today's the day. it wasn't happening.

know what you're looking for. you think i want to meet someone nice or cute, if you think about not a lot of details about height and weight and all that -- >> and you also can't get, in my opinion, too into those details on the first meeting, because i think henry, i'm in love with him, and we've been together for 11 years, but had i met him even a year earlier, i might have thought, this isn't what i wanted a year ago, but he is what i want for a life-long partner, he's smart and solid. and i also think knowing what's going to happen. i told my friends that are single, know that it's going to happen. >> you have to visualize it and know. i totally agree. this one was named black friday of dating. it's about as close to a national holiday for dating as you can get. match.com saw highest traffic last night at 8:25.

from deborah, it's the same thing but shows how differently you guys see the world. >> men and women. >> it's the mars/venus thing, different points of view. but at the end of the day we come to the same conclusion, but we just get there differently. one of my favorite lines about parenting was from roseanne bauer barr. at the end of the day, if they're fed, they're sleeping and they're not bleeding, it's a good day. >> anyone reading it, people will nod their head. >> buy two copies. >> why wouldn't you? >> "been there done that". >> and these two lovebirds made a vow to start exercising and lose weight.
